Pugsy, I know you have said previously that you are using the original tube and not the longer updated tube. ...... Did you ever experience that problem with the short tube? If so how did you correct it? Do you also still use the filter attaching to the exhaust areas? Do you change the filter often?
I did use the short hose/tube for quite a while and I never had a problem with. Rather liked it myself. I know one other person who had trouble with the short hose coming off too easily but I never had that happen to me.
Then someone tried the P10 hose on it so I tried it and I liked it as well. I am easy to please.
Last spring I got a chance to demo the new updated hose and it is very much equal to the P10 hose IMHO and that is what I continue to use. The short hose got delegated to the "spare" equipment plastic tote. Just in case one of my cats decides the hose is a fine toy to play with but chances are slim...they have never really shown any interest in my cpap mask equipment stuff.
I suspect you are talking about the filter material in the bikini thong diffuser???? I did get that also back last spring to demo and I just washed it for several months and only changed the material maybe 2 months or so ago. When I did just wash it....it was maybe once a month. I don't wash my stuff very often at all. Never have with any of my masks after my first 6 months on cpap. That got old real fast and I got lazy real fast and discovered that I didn't die or get sick if I didn't wash my masks and stuff very often.
If you are talking about the first homemade filter before Stuart came up with the bikini diffuser holder...I washed it about once every couple of months and when it got to the point that it seemed a bit too discolored after washing then I replaced it. Filters are cheap.
And yes...I still use the filter diffuser but now in the bikini thong holder. Otherwise the venting seems to hit something (usually my arm) and annoy me. I got spoiled with the P10 diffused venting so I still prefer it with the Bleep.
